‘Hot-dogging’ not becoming

Talk about self-serving adulation!

Jason Martin’s interception for the Cougars in the second quarter (against Idaho), which fell into his hands and was followed by the look-at-me, helmet-removal prance, was the most exceptional bush-league exhibition you could possibly expect!

What will happen when he actually makes a play? Grow up … you are expected to intercept … did it surprise you?
